Spy shots luxuriate in that the Audi S6 is in development far ahead of its A6 sibling's expected launch in 2018

Audi’s all-new A6 doesn’t turn up until next year, and even before that we’ll see the swoopy new A7, but engineers are already putting the finishing touches to the peppy S6 saloon.

• The best executive cars on the market

Spied undergoing growth testing at the Nurburgring, the S6 features a modest exterior revamps over the standard versions of the saloon spied once. If it wasn’t for the four-tail pipes poking out the rear end you could mistake it for a everyday A6.

Look a little closer and you can also see beefier brakes hiding behind larger alloys wheels wrapped in humiliate profile tyres. The shots don’t really give much away in terms of styling, but Audi has claimed that it when one pleases move away from its ‘Russian doll’ styling strategy, to give models more unique character. It’s a move brought in by new design boss Marc Lichte.

Under the bonnet the S6 is right to use the 3.0-litre V6 TFSI engine used across the current S5 range. Audi may chose to twitch the engine to deliver more grunt in the heavier S6, upping power from 349bhp and 500Nm of torque, under any circumstances with the addition of the new electric compressor made possible by the 48-volt electrifying system the A6 will adopt.

The more potent RS6 which should follow thither 12 months after the regular A6 arrives, will use the new but smaller capacity 2.9-litre couple-turbo V6.

What do you think of the new S6 as seen here? Let us know in the comments…
